Wide is my fav, and have several Lenses, but my most used one is the 40. I'd love a 38, but that is a totally separate unit.

I got the camera for Landscapes, thus the 40 f4. Anybody use a B104 Red Filter?

Darth, that's one filter I have never purchased for the Hassey. You can bet when a good one comes out on the Bay; it will be snapped up fast, as the 40 is a well used lens. Ever thought about a real deep orange?. There's a real nice one on the Bay now; and again not cheap.

When I used a Hasselblad the 80 was by far the most used. Had a 50, 60, 80, 150, 250 at one time or another. Used them all at one time or another.

Definitely a good reason for going with the CF version, it uses 93mm drop-in types which can be economically adapted to much more common 95mm filters via this adapter ring. I use it with both my 40mm F4 FLE CF and 350mm F5.6 CF, it does vignette a bit with the 40 but it's way better than nothing especially when using filters like a polarizer or R72 for infrared.

Your Lens is a beauty, and in the long run; way cheaper on filters due to lots out there. A polar for mine cost me $400 (used), but like new

I wanted to include the 38mm Biogon in the survey, but there were not enough response options, so I thought it best to include the lenses that fit on the 500CM bodies. Nevertheless, I do have a 500CM and it is one of my most-used Hassie lenses. I'm a wide-angle type. I use the 38, 40, 50, 60 the most. I do have the 80, 100, and 150, but they are used less. I bought the 100 because it is such a well-regarded lens; but I seem not to find much application for the focal length, and the 150 doesn't see that much use, either. Somehow I find the 120 Makro-Planar a good focal length, but I didn't keep it because of its softness at longer focal lengths. Maybe I should give it another try.

About a year or so ago I had the 50/60/80/100/150, all very close but I was trying out different things seeing what suited me composition-wise and while I appreciated each lens individually I eventually settled on the 60 and 100mm CF lenses as a pair and sold the 50/80/150 trio (which in itself is a wonderful and well-rounded kit).

So a few years later now my kit is the 60 and 100. Suits me just fine whenever I use the old Blad.

I'm down to only the 38 on my SWC/M. Did really like the 50 and the 150.

I like 38 and 110 best, 60 fills the middle ground.

I'm doubled up on the 60mm. I added the 60mm CF T* meaning to sell my 60 CT*; but I can't seem to part with the 60T*! I like the way it looks . . .

I have only used two China made Hassylbald mount lenses. Both are very rare, and was made to order for the military in 1970's, and only 20 some pieces were made. The one on the right is the 1000mm F6.7 mirror lens, much compact than a Zeiss Mirotar 1000mm F5.6.

Another one is a 311mm F5 prime that is quite sharp, and equally rare.
